Very cool. I wonder if anyone recorded it and put the entire thing online if it aired yesterday.

This was a brilliant preview on yesterday, much better than the Sky’s preview which was on Saturday. Fantastic interviews and a fabulous look at Fred and George’s new shop.

Hadn’t realised the cliffs in the trailer were actually the Cliffs of Moher!!

I just returned from a 3 week trip to Ireland for school – and got to see the Cliffs of Moher! At the time, I didn’t know that the Cliffs were the definite location shot for the cave (since Melissa had said on PotterCast that it looked like someplace in Hawaii). But after I saw the Cliffs in person, I knew straight away that this had to be the location – and it was great to see confirmation of that in this video. I also found it funny to hear Gambon’s Dublin accent – after spending 3 weeks traveling through all the provinces in Ireland, and hearing the different accents, he was right on with the “sort of Trinity” accent – lol!

Interesting, I didn’t realise that Dumbledore’s accent was Irish. Being from the southern U.S., I’m not very good at distinguishing those accents—unless they’re the southern drawl.

Guess That Book

Harry and Ron spent the rest of the ball discussing giants in their corner, neither of them having any inclination to dance. Harry tried not to watch Cho and Cedric too much; it gave him a strong desire to kick something.
